Christmas Cocktail And Drink Recipes

During the holidays, there’s no shortage of food and drinks. It’s the perfect season to indulge in a cocktail (or two… or, well, we’ll stop there). With so many festive ingredients to choose from, it’s easy to whip up an array of delicious Christmas cocktails. Try twists on traditional cinnamon concoctions with a simple homemade syrup or bubbly champagne cocktails that will take you from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. But don’t forget about the classic holiday drinks, like the wassail, a hot toddy, or eggnog. Instead of spending the whole time tending bar, you could also prepare a few big batch cocktails to wow the crowd. And, since every holiday host should prepare to stock the bar cart, we got a mixology pro to share his best tips for assembling the essentials. Just don’t forget to style your bar cart—guests tend to congregate near the drinks station at parties.
